Simple, Effective Leak Detection

Simple, Effective Leak Detection
22/06/2016

If packaging and components leak, the consequences can be fatal. A simple way of eliminating this risk is to use a water bath to detect leaks.

WITT Package leak detector LEAK-MASTER EASY (Bubble test) WITT-Gasetechnik offers a straightforward, cost-effective leak detection system called the LEAK-MASTER® EASY. This system makes it possible to detect even the smallest of leaks in products, components or packaging—whether for food items (with or without a protective atmosphere), electronic items (such as lights for the car industry), pharmaceutical products, bubble wrap, PET bottles or other items made of PET. The Easy can even be used for vacuum packaging.

The detection method is simple but effective. After the test sample is placed in the water-filled chamber, compressed air is used to evacuate the air space above the water level. At leakage points, the resulting vacuum causes air or filling gas to escape and bubble up to the top of the chamber in a way that is clearly visible.

The great advantage of this method is that the Quality Tester can quickly and easily determine whether the product is leaking and from where. This makes it possible to introduce changes to the manufacturing and packaging processes.

WITT also offers a touchscreen-operated electronic control module which makes it possible to record, save and transmit all of the test results.

In addition to the leak detection feature, it is also possible to carry out simple strength tests in the dry chamber. It is even possible to perform altitude simulation tests on products that need to be transported by air freight. This allows potential weak points in the packaging to be identified before they are transported.

The LEAK-MASTER® EASY is available in five variants with chamber volumes ranging from five to 55 gallons. Not only is the installation process simple, but the intuitive controls allow for easy operation without the need for a particularly trained staff. Furthermore, the test device is inexpensive to operate and low-maintenance: the sturdy acrylic housing is hygienic, easy to clean and can be emptied using a drainage tap in the base.
